Denver sex offender deregistration attorney

If you’ve been convicted of sex-related crimes in Colorado, you’re aware of the requirement to register as a sex offender with local law enforcement agencies. The same is true if the act was committed in another state and you later moved to Colorado.

You must register annually on your birthday and when you move. The registration requirement remains in effect until the court relieves you of this obligation. You must petition the court to be allowed to deregister from the sex-offender list and they must rule in your favor.

If you believe you may be eligible to deregister from Colorado’s sex offender list, you need to be aware of the law, the process and the type of case you must build. This is difficult to successfully manage without the help of a Denver criminal defense attorney trained and experienced in this area.

Colorado law allows for a person to submit a petition for deregistration after a certain period of time has elapsed following the completion of any sentence or probation. The time period depends on the category of the crime:

Sexual Offense ConvictionWhen You can Petition for Deregistration
Class 1, 2 or 3 felony20 years
Class 4, 5 or 6 felony10 years
Class 1 Misdemeanor10 years
Other Misdemeanor5 Years
Deferred Sentence or AdjudicationAfter Successful completion and dismissal of case
If under 18 years of age when adjudicatedAfter successful completion and discharge from the sentence

There is no opportunity to deregister for:

  • Persons determined to be sexually violent predators as defined by state law
  • Persons convicted as an adult of first or second degree sexual assault
  • Persons convicted as an adult of sexual assault on a child
  • Psychotherapists convicted of sexual assault on a client
  • Persons convicted of incest
  • Persons with repeat offenses in the same jurisdiction

Remember…only the courts can relieve you of the registration obligation. You cannot stop registering after the specified time period. Presenting your deregistration case to the court is a complex and sensitive matter. It requires significant case analysis and preparation even before the petition process begins.

Wolf Law founder and managing partner Jeff Wolf was featured in a 9News story about a man who was recently convicted in a Denver court of sexual assault, but has so far failed to register as a sex offender:

Truly There for You

Jeff is the best attorney my husband and I have used. He actually cared about what was best for my family. He actually fought for my husband and was on his side. He listened to my husband and made us feel like he was on our side and we could trust him with my husband’s future. I suggest to anyone looking for an attorney to put your trust in Jeff, he got us the best deal ever.

Thorough Representation

I had the pleasure of working with Cassandra regarding an expungement matter of a juvenile case. She was very concise in her explanations of the process and kept me up to date on the evolving progress of the case. Upon completion of the expungement, I was glad to see that Cassandra had gone the extra mile to make sure that the intricacies of my case were properly addressed. Although I hope to never personally require these services again, I would gladly recommend Cassandra and Wolf Law to anyone in need of representation.

Recommendation

I would highly recommend the Wolf Law Team for your legal needs. In my case, Colleen handled our legal needs in an expeditious, professional manner. She was very knowledgeable and understanding.

Case Dismissed

I met with a probation violation complaint for a DUI in Summit County. I live outside of Colorado, in Boston. I felt hopeless. I felt like my only option was to travel out to Colorado, give myself up and just see what happened. That would have meant jail and thus loss of job and loss of house.

I called Jeff and talked to him about my case. His experience in this area put me at ease. Jeff guided me through everything I needed to do to see this case through. The greatest thing is that I never had to leave home to clear this up. At the end of the day Jeff cleared my case (Case Dismissed) without me ever leaving Boston. Jeff is incredible, and his team is equally amazing.

I can’t thank Wolf Law enough for what they have done for me. I have a new outlook on life thanks to Jeff.

Hit and Run Charges

I had multiple charges stacked against me by the CSP office for a questionable “hit and run” in my office parking lot. Jeff reviewed the video evidence and was able to get the charges reduced from 26 points against my driver’s license down to 4. He was also able to get the fines reduced to the minimum amount! Jeff was extremely knowledgeable and helped ease my fears each time we spoke and explained the whole process and what to expect along the way. Thank you, Jeff!

I Was Lucky to Have Jeff Represent Me

After a referral from a friend, I was lucky enough to have Jeff represent me in a domestic violence case. I found Jeff to be extremely professional and experienced in his field. This being my first experience with the court system, he took the time to explain the process and my options in terms I could understand. I never felt like he was forcing me to take one option over another, he clearly explained each one and, while giving his recommendation, left it up to me as to which decision I felt would be the best for me and my family.

I am very pleased with the outcome of my case and would highly recommend Jeff to anyone in this situation.

Incredible Representation

I cant say enough positive things about my experience with Jeff Wolf. This was my first time needing a lawyer for representation, and Jeff made me feel informed and secure throughout the whole process. I couldn’t have asked for a better person on my side. He was able to navigate me thru a stressful time and it meant the world to me. He was great with DA; calm, but firm and determined to get me the best possible result. Also, the presiding judge clearly thought highly of Jeff Wolf. I would highly recommend Jeff Wolf to anyone looking for legal representation.

Exceptional Representation

I could not be happier related to the representation I received from Cassandra and her team. Outstanding expectation calibration, more important is her command and understanding of recent precedent setting case law…without that dexterity my case does not get dismissed. Cassandra is available, prepared and has healthy disdain for nonsense from prosecutors and/or judges. If you are in need of tenacious representation – I would highly recommend Cassandra!

I Recommend Jeff Wolf to Anyone Needing Legal Defense

I retained the services of Jeff Wolf after I received a DUI. During the free consultation, Jeff reviewed his services and the details of what would happen before, during and after my trial. He was very thorough, supportive and diligent in ensuring all my questions were answered. I am thrilled with the level of service he provided for an extremely reasonable fee. Jeff was accessible and reassuring throughout this entire process. The end-result of my hearing was exactly what I had expected based on Jeff’s counseling. This is a direct result of his knowledge and experience with the court and the system. I was very impressed with his closing presentation in court and his professionalism and felt that the judge reduced my fines and my sentence because of Jeff’s efforts. I have already recommended him to two other people and will continue to recommend him to anyone requiring the services of a defense attorney.

5 Stars

Was super helpful and always available anytime that I reached out. He was thorough and did everything that he could to help me out with my high BAC case. There isn’t a silver bullet out there and you likely won’t be lucky enough that somehow the charges go away, so your best bet is to sit with a consultation with Jeff and get your legal defense going ASAP as you work on the items that you can control (education/therapy/MADD panel) and let him handle the court items
